From Euphrasia on June 3rd, 2009 in Paving Stones
Many homeowners are looking for ways to add value to their property by utilizing stone effectively. In some cases, old driveways and other paving surfaces that need removal and renewal are excellent places to integrate stone. In other cases, the creation of patios or garden areas that eliminate water-thirsty lawns and incorporate natural, low-maintenance substances can be the ideal place to introduce stone pavers.
CalFinder represents many licensed contractors who include paving stone expertise in their array of services. These experts can be found throughout the U.S. Here are some fine examples of paving stone and landscaping stone experts from Washington, New York, Texas, and Florida.
